Roger Federer who is looking at his 15th Grand Slam Singles Title this year at Wimbledon and whose wife Mirka is expecting the couples first child shortly purchased a home in the Swiss village of Valbella which is in the Lenzerheide-Valbella Ski Area. 

No word yet on how the altitude is going to play into his training, but his next tournament after Wimbledon will be in Canada so he will miss a large portion of the US Open Series. 

Federer won the French Open this year to tie Pete Sampras with 14 Grand Slam Titles.  No word yet if the Federer’s are going to be giving the new child skis or a racket. 

We are taking over unders on names here.  The office pool is going with Ingvar Federer…named after Ingvar Kamprad the founder of Ikea.  The over under is not great for Martina after Martina Hingis, but is mild for Pengiran Minizack Renaldi Anak Hitchtafi Sarah Federer after the Crown Princess of Brunei who is 1/4th Swiss.
